Buy The Book: “The Last Traverse”I had the pleasure of working with Ty Gagne on his new book, “The Last Traverse”
Last winter Ty contacted me looking for “cold-looking” maps for an up coming book he was working on. He had seen a map style that he wanted to replicate. I love maps, spend a lot of time mapping data and building maps, and I told him I’d be happy to create them. The book is a tragedy about two hikers. A story like this has a lot of data, points and paths where events occurred. After many many emails we had all the points plotted, and the paths defined. Below are some of the maps I came up with. The published then annotated my winter-looking base maps.
“The Last Traverse“
Tragedy and Resilience in the Winter Whites
– by Ty Gagne – November 2020
A book is about two experienced hikers who set out to do the classic Franconia Ridge Loop, but in Winter. They were hit by high winds and bad weather about 1/2 though their hike as they were climbing Mt Lincoln. Only one made it back. The book is a must read for winter hikers.
